Hermanowa (Oligocene of Poland)

Where: Poland (49.9° N, 22.0° E: paleocoordinates 46.8° N, 20.1° E)

• coordinate stated in text

When: NP23 nannofossil zone, Rupelian (33.9 - 28.1 Ma)

• Trachinus event of the IPM2 zone

•This biostratigraphic restriction allows the assignment of this section to the Rupelian age (Early Oligocene) and more preciously to the NP23 calcareous nannoplankton zone (see Kotlarczyk et al. 2006: fig. 33).
